Hello, I just purchased a Audirvana license and have been really impressed with the sound quality. When I stream local files from my Windows 10 desktop hard drive to my PS Audio Directstream Bridge II, I don’t experience any problems other than a bit of a delay waiting for the music file to load. But it’s a very different story when I try to stream from Qobuz.
When I select albums from Qobuz I can usually (but not always) play the first track, and maybe select 2 or 3 other tracks, but I always must press the “stop” button before selecting another track. After playing at most, a few tracks, Audirvana freezes up, and I have go close the app and restart. The same thing happens if I play a track from one album and then try to play a track from a different album.
In the settings in “Device Name: DirectStream DAC”, I set the max rate to 24/96 with MQA off and no DSD, which I’d like to do, but can’t seem to get it to work. I played with the Max memory, but it doesn’t seem to help. I currently have it set to 555 MB
It’s a shame about Qobuz because I like its offerings, but not its integration with Audirvana. I’m on a 30 day trial.
When I stream using a USB connection to DirectStream everything works fine in both local and Qobuz, but the sound quality is so much better when I use the Bridge II connected to my Uptone Audio EtherRegen ethernet switch.
I would appreciate any advice.
